Bodega LOF ViLof Mencia 2018
Wine Making Notes:
The grapes are de-stemmed and processed separately in a 3000-liter tanks by spontaneous fermentation with yeasts from the Mencía grape.
Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished, 80% of each tank is aged separately in 225-liter French oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation in a natural way and then ages for 8 months. At 8 months the coupage is refreshed with 20% of unaged wine. The wine rests and is filtered for several weeks by gravity. No further clarification or filtering is carried out prior to bottling to guarantee its complexity and structure. The bottling is carried out in August while it is placed in boxes for a perfect rest without movement in the bottle to fully integrate its characteristics.
Ruby red with violet edges. On the nose Very expressive, lively and great aromatic potential, with notes of berries, raspberry and bramble. On the palate leaves wide velvety sensations, with good acidity and an expressive tannic finish, highlighting the vigor and fruitiness of its tannin. Overall, it stands out for its harmonious character and the strength and nobility of the varietal identity.
